At just 11 years old, Anwita Pati took the Mensa IQ test, the
world's oldest and largest
gifted society .
To the surprise of many, but not of their parents, who had already noticed something special in their little girl while she was growing up;
scored a 162
, her highest score in her age category.
In his test he obtained a score of 162, a result higher than that of Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking, who had an IQ of around 160 (Manchester Evening News).
Her result places her
above Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking
, both with a coefficient of 160.
His father, Jay Patil, is a consultant to the NHS in Manchester (the UK healthcare system) and his mother, a mathematician.
Anu and her daughter Anwita used to solve problems together, until it was the girl who
came to the solution before her own mother.
Her father remembers that at that moment they thought that "something else had to be happening", he confesses to the
Manchester Evening News
and impressed by her abilities they decided to take her to take the Mensa test, which is divided into two: a first part of linguistic ability and the lateral thinking / in this one he obtained a 162), and a second, which assesses visual and spatial awareness (Anwita here obtained a 140).
Anwita likes both math problems and the Harry Potter books (Manchester Evening News).
It was in January when the little Englishwoman appeared for the tests, after which they received the letter from Mensa informing them that Anwita had been accepted into society.
"When we found out, I thought 'must they be kidding?'" Her parents say.
A few days later, he celebrated his twelfth birthday and his entry into Mensa with his family and friends.
Anwita likes both math problems and
Harry Potter books,
and in her spare time she is also learning Bharatanatyam, a classical Indian dance, and playing the piano.
